Trent lives, works, plays and records in Lincoln, Nebraska and is available to travel for large or small gigs just about anywhere. A ‘Trent-Event’ features a truly enjoyable list of cover tunes … and his original music is fantastic.
Trent Brown is a true talent. His songwriting, storytelling and sense of melody is exquisite. In a live music setting … even better. — Dave Marks.
The Allendales formed in 2007 in a garage on Allendale Drive in Lincoln, Nebraska – a town that has become well-known as a musical honey-hole in recent years. With the exception of the occasional road trips to Texas or Colorado the boys have maintained their musical presence mainly in their home state of Nebraska. They started out as a group of (mostly) divorced dudes who hung out regularly throughout the week, drawing on each other for hope and humor, and making music together as a shared vehicle to their happy place.
The band currently consists of a solid four-piece, headed up by two lead vocalist/guitarists, Ken Morton and Shaun Sparks. Bassist Darryl Rivers also lends his backing vocals, making the band’s 3-piece harmonies the most recognizable aspect of their sound. Ken and Shaun trade between lead vocal duties, with the non-lead usually joining Darryl on backup harmonies. Drummer Matt Ihrig lays bricks with dynamic yet powerful drumming that ties the band, historically ranging wildly between classical country and punk rock, together into a cohesive alt-rock & roll sound.
